SWISS JUSTICE MINISTER reconsiders Swiss assisted suicide law

While originally suggesting (and even proposing a bill with a ban on some RtD Societies) tightening of the assisted suicide laws in order to limit the so-called “death tourism”, Justice Minister  Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf said in a Sonntagszeitung interview, that the law should not only be for terminally ill people, but also for the chronically ill.

Her idea is strongly supported by the Swiss National Ethik Commission (NEK). For German readers click on Sonntagszeitung to read the interview
